I am going to assume, dear readers, that you are just as excited about the movie adaptation of the page-turner Gone Girl as everyone else, and that as we did, you will delight in this particular coverage of it: Entertainment Weekly‘s Fall Movie Preview, which includes this glorious wedding photo starring Ben Affleck as Nick, who is accused of murdering his wife, Rosamund Pike’s Amy.
Our friends at Be Well Philly have a point when they talk about out how many potentially gross and harmful chemicals there are in the things we slather all over our bodies on a daily basis (lotions, nail polishes, shampoos, soaps, oils—you name it), and boy are we glad being recently grossed out led them to seek out alternatives in Philly, because we ended up with a really awesome roundup to share with you today!
Local Bridal Guide: Learn A Few Moves For Your First Dance With Lessons At One Of These 8 Philly-Area Studios
When most couples go about planning their first dance as husband and wife, the conversation often revolves heavily around the song that’ll be playing (possibly one of these?) and not so much the dance itself. Yes, the tune that you choose is very significant and will forever be known as “your song,” but it would also be nice if neither you nor your groom took a tumble on the dance floor.
Philly makeup artist Béke Beau (say it just like ‘Becky’) has been beautifying her clients for over 20 years—the last eight of them, happily, right here in our area.
She’s got a lovely by-appointment studio in Bryn Mawr where she offers makeup lessons (which include telling you which products and trends just aren’t worth your time) and where brides can go for makeup trials—though of course, she also spends many a weekend morning in the hotel suites, parents’ houses and venues of her brides as they primp and pamper for their weddings.
We checked in with Béke and her fab new platinum ‘do to see what she’s into right now—and to steal a few of her insider faves.
Not too long ago, numbers from a study done by the Knot showed that Philadelphia was the tenth most expensive city to get married in the country. Well, apparently, that’s only if you live here—because another recent breakdown also declares us the third cheapest city in the country to hold a destination wedding.
Good News, Soon-to-Be Wives: If You Are More Educated Than Your Husband, a New Study Says Your Marriage Is No Longer Doomed
Once upon a time, you maybe won’t be surprised to hear, if a wife was more educated than her husband, the chances were higher that the marriage would end in divorce.
Whether it was because the less educated husbands were threatened, or this particular distinction indicated that the husband and wife were probably so different in so many other ways that they were already headed for their lawyers’ offices anyway, researchers were never sure—but they were sure about was the pattern.
It is no longer so, say the scientists! Well thank goodness and sheesh, it’s 2014, say the rest of us.
We here at PW are big fans of a fun little wedding-related quiz. Yes, they’re usually silly and maybe a bit ridiculous, but they’re also really entertaining and can oftentimes yield some pretty interesting (if not accurate) results.
In recent months, we’ve shared quite a few fun quizzes to get you in the wedding mood (take a look below—and then take them!)—but the latest wedding test of sorts to catch our interest revolves around whether or not you’re at risk of becoming a bridezilla.
